Sherma-versary

Today is Sherma-versary, 3 years since we lost our darling golden boy to cancer. He was only 4 1/2, far far far too young. Time does mellow the pain of loss, and warm memories of him fill our hearts with joy and put smiles on our faces when we recall his antics, his big bear-head, love of peanut-butter, and his wonderful smile.
Everyone who met Sherms fell in love with him, he was the most mellow, laid-back husky you can imagine. I know, "mellow" and "laid-back" aren't usually in the same sentence as "husky", but Sherman was a treasure. He's gotten lots of company over the past 3 years, as many furiends have crossed, and last fall his sis Tori joined him, and most especially, his beloved Star crossed to be with him forever. Knowing they are together makes me happy too. Those two were genuine soulmates.
In honor of you, Jack & Moo will get a big blob of peanut butter on their cookies tonight, Sherman. We love and miss ya, big guy.

You are right, that is far too young. Cancer is common in Greyhounds and I live in fear of the same.

Run free sweet boy.

We've been thinking about him khwite often the past few days -

We knew 'today' was the day -

And as a few of our furiends khrossed in the past few days, we knew Sherman, Star, and Tori would be greeting them -

Here's to a furry handsome furiend!

We know you still miss him. We always remember Sherma-versary too because he was our first blogging friend to go over the Rainbow Bridge and the first of many (unfortunately) pups mom would shed tears over.

Look ~ Up in the Sky ...
Ya see the Twinkle from their Silver
Harness catch the light?
That's God's Silver Team dashing off,
North of the Bridge.
And who's that in the dark furrs,
behind Sherman, Star and Tori?
Yup, that's Rosie the Rotti.
And further back - with only the Tip
of his *waving* tail visible above the drifts ...
My lil Husky Wanna-Be = Bowser, in
his half-sized Silver Harness,
doing his best to keep up.

Cyber-sibes said...

Phred, yup, we're sure Bowser is right there with them. Don't worry, you know Star, she'll slow the team down just so his little legs can keep up! ; )

Enjoying fond memories of those Husky Hikes we all did together!
